GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 30, 2008) — Michelin North America Inc.'s Uniroyal tire brand is launching the Laredo AWT II light truck/sport-utility vehicle tire July 1.
The new tire will replace the Laredo AWT and offers improved tread life and wet and dry handling due to an advanced polymer tread compound and stress-optimized contact patch, Uniroyal said. The product is engineered with Durashield construction.
The tire will be available for delivery after July 1, Michelin said, and dealers may contact the company's customer service department to place orders. The Laredo AWT II comes in 21 sizes including 13 P-metric S and 8 LT metric Q speed-rated sizes.
